“What you need is a mediocre amount of sleep. It should be a good, short sleep from an exhausting, enriched experience. No time for sleep. Experience Tokyo.”

This is part of the motto for Wise Owl Hostels Tokyo which opened last month in Hatchobori, Chuo Ward, Tokyo. Though it may sound like an invitation for partying youths to crash after a night of hardcore clubbing, the hostel aims to attract not just young travellers, but also couples and even families.

Four  floors offer dorms, twin rooms,  and “family dorms” for four people, while the sixth floor has a serviced apartment available to rent for one month or longer. In addition to all this, the hostel has its own basement bar, Sound & Bar Howl, which houses a custom-designed, state-of-the-art sound system.
